More later from the Science Fair – just off to see Manchester United win the title
Hey, I was talking to myself in the last thread.
LOL…..yes, you were talking about hair growning in the palm of your hands or something.
Cat scratch on my palm!
I swear, I get scratched by the little darlings while I’m asleep, and it never wakes me up.
Calm down LL you’re among friends, we don’t judge.
LL, you’re turning in to VC!!!
And one of your most intelligent conversations, I assume.
While the President is at the Whitehouse participating in the annual science fair, the Justice Department is out in Boston laying the legal wood on young Mr. Bomber’s ass. No fanfare, no drama, and no preening in front of any cameras.
That’s the beauty of this administration in action. No peacocks, jerks or whiners. Just a collection of hard working individuals doing their jobs, and doing it well.
The white house will not try this bomber as an enemy combatant like the GOP jokers want! Good news!
I think it has something to do with him being a legal citizen, President Obama using the dang law again to bring the Boston Bomber to justice.
What’s wif dis president, he thinkin’ he’s a constitutional lawyer or sumptin’? For cryin’ out loud…..
Strikes me as funny when they squawk about drone strikes on “American citizens” in foreign countries but citizens here they want to throw to the wolves. Go figure.
inorite. It’s all about the money – who screams the loudest.
The entire event was fantastic from start to finish. Science is so bloody cool and it’s wonderful having a kick ass bonafide nerd president.
Wonderful way to begin the week.
Agree. I just posted that on FB. Hoping people interested in science with young’uns will take heed.
I love his curiosity, especially after suffering the intellectual desert of the Bush years.
Read the whole thing, it is well worth it.

“What if he is, as he still appears to be, merely Dylan Klebold with a funny name and a pulse?”
Yep. Way more likely this was a bomber version of Columbine than any thing else one might reasonably conjecture at this point.
Bob, I was listening to someone on the t.v. or the radio the other day saying almost the exact same thing. These guys didn’t think this bombing all the way out if they were actually planning on getting away, actual suicide bombers don’t try to get away. These two guys set off a bomb, then as an after-thought car-jacked someone to take them to an ATM machine to get money for god knows what.
Exactly! Not like we don’t have homegrown terrorists…
@JeffersonObama here's a good one to share http://t.co/bUI0syLgiP— Hans (@ItsOasus) April 22, 2013
IMHO the older brother fomented this because he was denied citizenship and it probably galled him that his “little” brother got ahead of him. Sibling rivalry anyone?
Here are the fundraising totals for march
The birds that my coworkers and I have been following via the Cornell Bird Cam have had babies!!
Thanks for sharing rikyrah.
What the Republicans want is for President Obama to come out on the south lawn dressed in a fighter pilot’s suit carry his helmet with one hand and holding up to the crowd the severed head of the bomber in the other hand.
No going to happen. Love him in a suit, doing what he does best. follow the law.
It’ll never happen cause he is not a phoney…

You have every right to be so proud of those kids, they are amazing. That took alot of work and dedication.
Howdy doody all you O’s!! It’s a great getting up day again on planet TOD! I took a little break to get my Ying and Yang in back in harmony. When certain events occur I have to readjust my Zen. It’s either that, or retreat to undesirable vices, which are few, but very potent. Anyway, good to see everyone still in their places with bright shiny faces.
btw Liberal Librarian, don’t know if the Mrs can use this, but I get notifications of this stuff, just in case #2 decides to do something in the medical field one day. This one is for nurses. http://www.hrsa.gov/loanscholarships/scholarships/Nursing/index.html.
Welcome back; you were missed!
Thanks and I loooove a good drum line. that was great and very original. Hat tip to Upper Darby HS.
Well, I know 3 people who can use this. Thanks a million!
oh kewl, glad to help.
Cookemom glad to see you back! You missed a serious “naughty mat” thread yesterday….
I went back to check it out. Lawd, those feetsies and toes! Now I understand the psyche of a foot fetisher. This brings a whole new meaning to the ‘This Little Piggy’ toe tickle game. #hubbahubbayeow
ha ha, just when I got my ying and yang back in place. That shirt put my Zen outta whack again. It’ll take Yardarm and his whole crew and armana to settle me down.
Yes, yes, I can see that…LOL!

Hay Senator Richard Burr N.Carolina Senator, look who else can buy guns without a back ground check. Thanks for looking out for terrorists. That’s my email to the Senator.
I wrote him also, Anniebella……….So, Mr. Burr, you voted against background checks for all gun sales and the Boston terrorists had guns without background checks. The next incident is on YOU. Hope you can look at yourself in the mirror or look at your children and grandchildren. You sure endangered mine. We are not going away and we don’t forget.
Folks, if indeed the bomber brothers acquired guns in a gun show, the background checks will be back on the Senate floor very very soon, and will pass overwhelmingly. And republicans will look like fools. I can’t wait.
What wonderful young ladies and what a great invention. When I see young people like these two, I am reminded that many kids are using their talents in a positive manner and that the future is in safer hands than it sometimes seem. Good to see our PBO participating with such enthusiasm as always. These young ladies will remember and be inspired by his attention probably for the rest of their lives.
Ceb, I was thinking the same thing and also how refreshing it is to see intelligent, articulate young people develop creative projects and see them through to this level of visibility. After all the gloom about a world gone mad, this gives me hope for the future
Canada foils ‘al-Qaeda inspire’ terror attack on train
Canada’s authorities say they have arrested and charged two people with conspiring to carry out an “al-Qaeda inspired” attack on a passenger train. … http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-22258191
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are expected to announce Monday afternoon that Canadian law enforcement officials have “thwarted a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack, arresting suspects in Ontario and Quebec,” the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported.
An official with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police tells CNN that the plot intended to target “transport links,” but would not provide further details. The source confirmed that there is no link between the Canadian investigation and the Boston bomb attack, and added there was no known link with the Canadians involved in the terror attack on the Algerian gas plant in January.
The CBC, which is a CNN affiliate, quoted “highly placed sources” as saying the suspects were under surveillance for more than a year.
No connection exists between the disrupted plot in Canada and the Boston Marathon bombings, U.S. government sources told CNN’s Carol Cratty.
The CBC reported that the investigation was “part of a cross-border operation involving Canadian law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.”

So, why do I have to read about my state treasurers actions in an out of state newspaper?????
PA state treasurer halts payments to vendor amid legal questions about @GovernorCorbett's no-bid contract therepublic.com/view/story/978…— Danny Kanner (@DannyKanner) April 22, 2013

@PhilHeron – Did I miss this in DelCoTimes? Pa. treas questions, stops pay on Corbett's no-bid website tech contract therepublic.com/view/story/978…— Alycee (@jazziz2) April 22, 2013
Alycee, I’m sure the governor’s office is in a panic about this and doing everything it can to keep it under wraps. Corbett is a corrupt fool and he is sinking like a stone. I’m rooting for Treasurer for McCord, not only to embarrass Corbett now, but to beat him the 2014 election.
Yeah, I’m rooting for McCord, too! I believe that he is the best candidate, announced or unannounced (looking at you, my buddy Joe Sestak), for Governor.
BTW, how did your workshop go?
Sounds like things are getting hot in PA.
Why the heck would Martin bring on Joe Walsh ? What is going on at MSNBC ?
I think he likes to show the public the pure idiocy of the right wing—-but still—–Joe Walsh makes me nauseous. I mean, for real.
Martin is bringing that Walsh guy on to much, I might have to stop watching his show.
omigod—–Martin dug up crazy deadbeat dad loserman, Joe Walsh. Ay yi yi. Can he just stay buried?
Curious to hear what he had to say, wow, what a hateful, angry man. Watched his eyes and the anger was scary, he is the type of terrorist we should be watching. Martin showed how stupid, hateful this man is.
PBO is gonna visit west Texas, hope he’ll be okay.
It’s a sad, sad commentary on our country, Jeff, when we worry more about PBO visiting states in the US, than about going overseas.
He will be just fine Jeff.
Steve Benen is the best!
Found this in the comment section on Dowd
“She is a fruit cake, fill with right wing nut jobs, and just as flacky as they come. Put her in cold storage until next Christmas where she belongs. Then you can re-gift her.”

Police probe possible link between Marathon bomber and unsolved triple homicide in Waltham.— The Boston Globe (@BostonGlobe) April 22, 2013
Relative of triple homcide victim in Waltham says brutal murders occurred on Sept. 11, 2011, 10th anniversary of Sept. 11 attacks.— The Boston Globe (@BostonGlobe) April 22, 2013
Turning over every stone .
I know the media is desperate to link the current bombing to some other outside plot, esp. Al Qaeda related – but the triple murders in Waltham took place on Sept 12, not Sept 11th. Note that the Boston Globe cites a relative’s account and does NOT give the accurate date. I wonder why?
Back soon, just finishing my 20th bottle of champagne
